Hot Chocolate in the Microwave

Hot Chocolate in the Microwave

I made a rich hot chocolate with lots of pure cocoa. It's delicious and satisfying.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Cocoa powder
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
50 ml
Milk (or soy milk)
150 ml
Vanilla essence (optional)
a little


1. Put the water, pure cocoa powder and sugar into a mug and mix. Microwave it for 30 seconds.
2. Add the milk /soy milk, and microwave for a further 1 minute 30 seconds.
3. Add some vanilla essence to finish.
4. You can make your own variations - try it topped with whipped cream, marshmallows, or with frothy cappuccino-style milk.

Story Behind this Recipe

I got some hints from an American hot chocolate recipe and made my own version. It's easy to make, but my son absolutely loves it!
